Everything I packed in my hospital bag + baby boy's hospital bag

Everything I packed in my hospital bag + baby boy's hospital bag

I cannot believe I will be full term in a few days and am writing what I have packed in my hospital bags. In case you missed it, I have a full IGTV with everything I packed, but I thought it would be helpful to also have a blog post so I can link some things for you guys. Let's get straight into it. Here is the full breakdown with all the details...







Labour section

Clothing/toiletries section

  • A robe
    (a dark coloured one)
  • PJ's
    I have a button-down short sleeve set (perfect for breastfeeding) from Amazon and a tracksuit from Bonds.
  • Maternity bras
    SKIMS have an amazing one linked here but definitely on the pricier side! Dupe for the SKIMS ones linked here. I sized up in my maternity bras.
  • Socks
  • Slippers 
    For walking around the hospital
  • Slides 
    For showering/getting to and from the hospital
  • Black undies
    I sized up and went for seamless, comfy and cheap because let's be real, they'll likely get gross and tossed out
  • Going home outfit
    I am going for all black: biker shorts, oversized tee and slides. I also packed my compression shorts to pop underneath my bike shorts as per my physio's recommendation.
  • Toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, hair ties, dry shampoo, shampoo + conditioner if I want to wash my hair, body wash, face moisturiser, body butter, concealer, mascara
  • Tote bag for dirty washing
  • Baby name necklace


Postpartum recovery section



  • Snacks
  • 2 x pillows (1 for me, 1 for Brenton)
  • Snuggly blankets - 1 for me, 1 for Brenton
  • Laptop
  • Long phone chargers
  • Brenton's clothes
  • Water bottle with straw
  • Prenatal vitamins 
  • Exercise ball 
  • Beats, Air Pods, Bluetooth speaker
  • Paperwork: birth plan, cards, etc
  • Lavender oil

This was super helpful Beth! I will definitely be referring back to this when it’s time for me to pack my hospital bag. Loved that you included some links too :)
